Starting on Monday Mar. 23, we will have a change to our Meals for Students program.

  • We will no longer serve breakfast from 8:30 - 9:30 am every day. Instead, we will serve combo meals every day from 11:30 am - 12:30 pm. We will continue to serve meals every weekday, Monday to Friday, even during Spring Break.
  • Depending on demand, sites may remain open longer if families are still in line after 12:30 pm.
  • Please note that we will NOT serve breakfast on Monday Mar. 23 as we shift to this new format. We apologize for any disruption this may cause.

+1 Campaign

This year, the Whittier PTA and ELP Steering Committees want to encourage you to think "+1" any time you are purchasing clothing for your own child.  Find a good back-to-school sale on uniform items? Consider buying one extra piece of clothing or one extra outfit that you can donate.  Are the seasons changing and your child has outgrown a few items that are still in good shape?  Think Whittier first. We will have a bin located in the main office where you can drop off these new (or gently used) uniform items throughout the school year.  Together, our efforts can make a big difference for the children in our Whittier community!
